Decimal expansion of phi(1) where phi(x)=integral(t=0,infinity, e^t/(x+t) dt ).  Benoit Cloitre, Apr 11 2003
The divergent series g(x=1,m) = 1^m*1!  2^m*2! + 3^m*3!  4^m*4! + ... , m=>1, is intimately related to Gompertz's constant. We discovered that g(x=1,m) = (1)^m * (A040027(m)  A000110(m+1) * A073003) with A000110 the Bell numbers and A040027 a sequence that was published by Gould, see for more information A163940.

The second part of Lagarias (2013) describes various mathematical developments involving Euler's constant, as well as another constant, the EulerGompertz constant.  Jonathan Vos Post, Mar 13 2013

FORMULA

phi(1) = e*(sum(k>=1, (1)^(k1)/k/k!)  Gamma) = 0.596347362323194... where Gamma is the Euler constant.
G = 0.596347... = 1/(1+1/(1+1/(1+2/(1+2/(1+3/(1+3/(1+4/(1+4/(1+5/(1+5/(1+6/(...  Philippe Deléham, Aug 14 2005
From Peter Bala, Oct 11 2012: (Start)
Stieltjes found the continued fraction representation G = 1/(2  1^2/(4  2^2/(6  3^2/(8  ...)))). See [Wall, Chapter 18, (92.7) with a = 1]. The sequence of convergents to the continued fraction begins [1/2, 4/7, 20/34, 124/209, ...]. The numerators are in A002793 and the denominators in A002720.
Also, 1  G has the continued fraction representation 1/(3  2/(5  6/(7  ... n*(n+1)/((2*n+3)  ...)))) with convergents beginning [1/3, 5/13, 29/73, 201/501, ...]. The numerators are in A201203 (unsigned) and the denominators are in A000262.

G = f(1) with f solution to the o.d.e. x^2*f'(x)+(x+1)*f(x)=1 such that f(0)=1.  JeanFrançois Alcover, May 28 2013
